Oakland is looking to climb out of the hold they dug themselves to start the season. Beating up on the Astros will definitely help.
Oakland has just one win through its first eight games, all against the Dodgers and Astros. They are 30th in runs per game and 30th in ERA so they have not been unlucky, they have just been bad. The team is hitting just .170.
Frankie Montas got lit up by the Dodgers in his only start this season. Houston does not have as deep a lineup but they have guys that can definitely do damage too.
Bad pitching has not just been the domain of the starters this season. The relievers also need to be a lot better. Their numbers look terrible too and Trevor Rosenthal is getting cut on. He was supposed to be the closer.
Houston is pretty good and the A’s have been making them look great to start the year. Right now this team is second in scoring and 4th in team ERA, I am not sure they can keep that up.
Jose Urquidy is a guy the Astros want to be part of the next generation. He only went 4.1 in his first start but was solid with just a couple of runs allowed. Eventually, they are going to need to work at least half a game.
In that first start by Urquidy he has backed up by 4.2 scoreless innings from Brandon Bielak. Bielak did not give up a hit or a walk in the game either. Their bullpen has been very good to start the season.

Free Oakland A’s vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
I have to think Oakland finds its way eventually. Not every team on their schedule has played in one of the last four World Series. This is not a good spot though.
I am not sure what is up with Montas who they are hoping returns to form. I would rather be late on the A’s then start backing them too soo and losing some more.
